Reports say Win10 Creators Update users are being forced to Fall Creators Update. Again.

Microsoft’s documentation runs all over the place, but yesterday an announcement from ‘Softie John Cable is widely interpreted as saying that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, version 1709, is now ready for business use. Gregg Keizer has details.

Cable says:

Fall Creators Update (version 1709) is fully available for all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide! Full availability is the final phase of our rollout process. … Enterprise customers following this same targeted approach for the Semi-Annual Channel can also fully deploy when ready.

While that isn’t, literally, the “Current Branch for Business” imprimatur that we’ve had in the past, as Keizer explains, it’s the closest we’re going to get.

Tellingly, Microsoft’s official Windows 10 release information page (see screenshot) is all over the map. While Cable’s announcement seems to designate 1709 as a “Semi-Annual Channel” release (formerly Current Branch for Business), in fact Microsoft’s page still shows it as “Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)” which corresponds to the old “Current Branch.”
